so my due date is the 17th, but i'm getting induced on tuesday because the past few weeks my baby hasn't been that reactive during the no stress tests and the doctor also said that, basically, the placenta is getting old. i'm really excited to be having my baby earlier than planned, but i'm nervous because my doctor said i might have to have a c section because my baby is measuring about 8 and a half lbs. i'm a really tiny girl (i'm 4'10 and i weigh 120 after all the pregnancy weight gain) so i guess i might not be able to have him vaginally, but he said we'll try first. my question is, did it happen to anyone else where their baby measured big and didn't come out as big as the doctor said? i really don't want a c section and i'm hoping i also don't have to push out a 9 lb baby either. i'm just really nervous about the whole thing. i know the ultrasound measurements aren't always accurate but i don't know what to make of all of this..
*** just to clarify- my doctor didn't tell me i had to have a c section. he just said it might be possible and that we are going to try and deliver vaginally anyway and if there's an issue, then i'd have a c section. also, i'm not being induced due to the size of the baby. i'm being induced due to my body not being able to handle the baby anymore and it's, pretty much, stressing the baby out too.
